Politics is the study of public power: Who has it? Who influences it? How does it work? Political science focuses on local, state, national, and international levels. The lessons of politics apply in all areas of life, including family and job relationships.

The BA in political science offers great flexibility; students choose courses from a rich curriculum, providing close student-faculty contact. Significant work experience and internship opportunities are offered in the state legislature, with lobbying groups, political parties, candidates, and in the offices of U.S. Senators and Representatives.
